Measuring Chart for Polyurethane Horseshoes

Please compare your hoof measurements on the table below with our shoe sizes to ensure you order the correct size.

About Measuring Polyurethane Horse

Accurate hoof measurements should be taken directly after trim!
Measurements of the hoof should be taken at the widest and longest point when using a measuring tape. (see below)
When measuring untrimmed hooves or hooves currently in shoes, it is suggested that you allow for the 5 – 7 mm (13/64 – 9/32 of an inch)
that will be trimmed from the hoof before shoeing.
The width measurement is generally the most important as the shoes have extra length that can be trimmed off.

A very helpful measuring tool to have is a TERRAFLEX™ FIT KIT. The FIT KIT gives you the most accurate sizing.
All FIT KIT sets contain four (4) different sizes of shoes, to try against a trimmed hoof to determine the correct fit. (see below)
FIT KITS are suitable for determining hoof sizes on multiple hooves without requiring individual measurements. Particularly suited for
Trimmers, Farriers or those sizing multiple hooves regularly.

Trimming Polyurethane Horseshoes

The width measurement is generally the most important as the shoes have extra length that can be trimmed off.
If the length of the shoe on the chart is not long enough for the hoof, choose the next size up and trim excess width from the shoe.
All of the TERRAFLEX™ shoes can be trimmed and shaped to fit front and rear hooves as required.
You can trim the shoe before or after application. When gluing, trace the hoof onto the shoe then trim the excess off before application.
Please Note: Leave an approximate 2 mm – 3 mm (5/64 – 1/8 of an inch) of shoe past the outer edge of the hoof wall to cope with
expansion and movement.

Fitting Plastic or Polyurethane Horseshoes

Our universal shoe shape fits a large variety of hoof shapes. Just trim the excess shoe off.
It is recommended that you view our videos to see how easy fitting a TERRAFLEX™ plastic horse shoe can be.
The shoe is designed to absorb imbalances in the hoof; however, a properly balanced trim is recommended. Look for uneven wear patterns on the shoes after use to help identify and address trim imbalances.
